Feast of Saints Phillip and James

This prayer from the Magnificat this morning brought tears to my eyes:
O Lord our God, you chose to build your Church upon the faith of ordinary people made extraordinary by the companionship of your Son and the power of the Holy Spirit. Keep us faithful to the gift which they received with such joy and handed on at such cost, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Ordinary people – just like me. O Lord help me to be worthy of the trust You placed in me.
